After the winter has finally shed its cloak and the snow has melted away, NAKAJIMA PARK is a great place to walk around and take in the sights and smells of spring. Shobu pond sits in the heart of the park and during spring, summer and autumn the public can take out the boats and slowly float along its surface.

The boats fit up to 3 people and cost a very modest ¥600 per boat for 40 minutes. Its the perfect opportunity to wind down and enjoy the park via the water. Float around or tune up your boating skills. Nakajima Park is home to a large family of ducks and they will happily swim up to the boats which adds to the serenity. After your paddle around the pond, why not lay out a blanket on the banks and have a picnic and lay back with that special someone.
